I am a pensioner and is renting a house from a friend and sub lease one of the rooms. This person quit his job/ was fired a month ago and I was struggling to get his rent from him. He still has no job, and is sitting at home the whole day. The end of last month he sold/pawned his laptop to pay me R1 700 in stead of R2 000. I told him that he must move out the end of this month and he told me (very aggressively) that he won’t leave and will find the money to pay me. He is verbally abusing me and he is also using drugs in his room. I gave him a written notice to leave by the end of the month, but I can see I am going to have a problem.

What can I do?
